Chrysler 300M: Audio



  • About all the help i can give you is location of your amp, if you have one. Open your trunk and check on the passenger side slightly behind the rear tire well, if you have one, it will be there mounted to the side of the trunk wall behind the carpet/padding material.

    good luck.

  • I read through all the posts here and I guess I am now more confused. Let me explain what I mean. My left door speaker is making a crackling sound and is blown. I read on this forum one guy saying the speakers in the car are 2 OHMs. Most of the ones you buy in the stores are 4 or 8 ohms. So if I want to upgrade and not replace the side doors with a better speaker what are my options to make it sound correct and not less power? I am still learning about ohms and stuff so please bare with me. So my main question is how to upgrade the car door side speakers to better ones without losing quality. The other question is I may want to add a different head unit so does that mean I would have to change all the speakers so the ohms are right? Any details on how this is done and my options would GREATLY be apprecaited. Thank you.
  • Can I change 2005 300 AM/FM Radio 6 Discs MP3 changer to my 2000 300M?
  • I have the same problem in my 2000 300M with the door speakers and would like to try your method of re-gluing the cone back to the frame. How did you do this and what kind of glue did your use?
    Thanks for your help.
  • if you are not getting anything below 120hz, i know that must suck. you can replace the factory stereo with any unit you want, and there is a device sold by crutchfield, part number PAC SWI-X. check it out, it turns your steering wheel controls into a wireless remote control. i will be getting the same thing soon. hope this helps.

    I have a 2003 300M that does not get used very much (11000 miles). When I returned from trip to Florida the battery was completely dead. I hooked charger up and everything was fine except the 6 disc cd player now flashes continously and shows ERR in the display window.

    I tired a suggestion I read here about unhooking battery for several hours. This did not help. I think there are 3 cds in the changer and I can't get them out. From reading this forum, it appears that the changer is easily removed by prying off the cover and removing two screws.

    Can someone help me with a solution or tell me how to pry the cover off to remove the changer. I tried with a screwdriver but it didn't seem to budge and I'm afraid of damaging the area around the cover or the cover itself. Is there a particular point to pry from?

    I've posted here for help on removing the cd changer in my 2003 300M but have not gotten any response yet. If you see this can you tell me how you got the changer out?

    Removing the CD changer is just as easy as you've heard. Simply pry the face plate/bezel away from the radio. If I remember correctly, on my 2001 there are 4 friction-fit pins that must be pried out of the holes in the 4 corners of the faceplate. It is not difficult to do, but you may have to exert some pressure to get the first corner started. If you are worried about breaking something by using a screwdriver, try some other thin flat tool - like a putty knife, trim tool, or even a kitchen spatula. Once you get the face plate off, there really are just 2 screws to remove from the left and right sides of the changer to get the changer out.

    Good luck.

    2000 300m
    Hey last night i went through the PITA process of putting a new set of 6x9s in the rear. they dont fit perfect but i padded it up real tight to avoid any vibrations... however, it sounds worse than before. i know there is a 14w adapter from the infiniti sound system that i cut off and just soldered the + and -. so here is my question... im going to install a pioneer deck and was wondering if there was a way i could completely disconnect the infiniti amp and run it straight from the deck or should i just attach the remote wire to the new deck? which would they sound better from? and also is the 14w harness available in stores? sorry for so many questions but im completely stuck. thanks!

    i have a 2000 300m also with single disc changer. check your radio fuse.. not sure which is which but theres a good chance u blew your fuse for the cd changer. hope that helps!
  • I have a 99 300m. It would be easier to buy a 4 channel amp and rewire the doors. That's what I did. That infiniti system is made to only sound good with that system. you go changing stuff and you are in for big problems.

    You have your deck, I would get a nice 4 channel amp and a 100 foot spool of speaker wire. If you can remove/replace the door panels, it makes it a lot easier.

    hope this helps.

    P.S. please don't go to the big box for the supplies. they are highly overpriced.

    Sounds like a lot of work...

    With the exception of the front 6 3/4 door speakers, the Infinity System is actually fairly decent and it will be hard to surpass its sound quality without spending as lot of time and money.

    If you are just looking for more bass I suggest the Infinity BassLink...I had it in a previosu vehicle and it really thumped.

    I have read all the posts and am totally confused. Please know that I am totally illiterate about car repair. Problem-my door speaker on passenger began vibrating the whole door when base and volume turned up. I just disconnected the speaker to replace later. Now the driver side is doing the same thing. If I fade most of the sound to the rear and turn the bass to mid way, it is better, but who wants to not take advantage of all the speakers. I've been reading that replacing these speakers will mess up whole system because the OHM are only 2. Could sombody tell me exactly what to buy to replace that will be compatible with my existing system? I don't wish to replace the system, just the 2 speakers.

    Hey all

    I'm trying to install an aftermarket cd player into my gf's 99 300m with the infinity sound system and i realize in order to get sound out of the speakers you have to bypass the stock amp. im also installing a subwoofer and all that but thats no problem as i've done that plenty times, but anyways.. Does anybody know how to bypass the stock amp easily? i cant seem to find the answer to this and audio shops wont tell me either! quick responses would be greatly appreciated!!
